“Tucked away down a hill. Very private. You will get a ride down with a little buggy so you don't have to carry your things down which was very appreciated. Very cute family of bandicoot live there. They'll come to you. We even managed to pet a couple of them. We left apples and pears for them on a little plate outside and every morning the plate was empty. Very quiet and private down there. You won't hear a sound. Logs provided the fire. Very well equipped little cabin. Nice and warm. Would come back for sure!”

“My partner and I stayed at the earth ship for our anniversary weekend and we had the most fabulous time! The space was beautiful and it was really cool to learn more about this style of living. The main room linking out to the green house created such incredible vibes and made you feel like you were outside without having to deal with the chilly weather we are currently having. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful nights in front of the fire. Highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!”
A cosy, curated cottage with a rustic vibe, Ode to the Orchard is surrounded by the Adelaide Hills’ finest wineries and sits high on 16 acres. It is one of the original stone homes of the area and enjoys stunning views of picturesque Lenswood. There is no better place to relax: soak in the gorgeous claw-foot bath looking out to the stars, enjoy that glass of local red by the fire, or try out our apple crumble recipe in the vintage wood-fired Aga.
“From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed and beautifully disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place was clean and the cutest and comfortable space to unwind. Waking up and sitting on the porch outside, listening to the peaceful sounds is amazing. The fireplace warms up the house and makes it very cosy. The outdoor bath when the sun has gone down is the perfect wind down. Also recommend getting the wine and platter on a arrival, the Apple sauce was amazing. There was information about the places to go around the area. I definitely will be coming back when i can, thank you so much for having me.”
